    "Boy what a crazy, memorable finish that other game is having. But don't worry, we'll keep you here for the kneel downs. You're welcome, America."

    This is something I'll never understand. "We're going to keep showing you a game the outcome of which is long since decided and give you occasional updates on the close, thrilling game going on elsewhere."

    Seems like anytime the Saints do something, there is a flag. And a lot of them, like the last, are really ticky-tack.

    BTW, what the hell was that kickoff. Down two scores, you have to have an onside kick to win and you do that "ooh, we're going to try to pin Dallas deep" thing?

    That's alright, I call everyone south of New York a Brazilian.

    Whatever pronoun translates as "smart enough to be able to name the 6 New England states"

    So, as a New Englander, I feel like I need to challenge some people to go look up what New Jersey is not a part of.

    How the crap is it "irrelevant" that you're claiming 4 players are the best Redskins when they're clearly not?

    Presidential Election 2020 - Baby Sharpie vs Batwoman or Batman

    So, just to give an idea of how all over the place some of these polls are, here are the important numbers from the three NH Polls released this week: CBS: Warren 27 Biden 26 Sanders 25 Buttigieg 8 Harris 7 Gabbard 1 Emerson: Biden 24 Warren 21 Sanders 13 Buttigieg 11 Harris 8 Gabbard 6 Boston Herald: Sanders 29 Biden 21 Warren 17 Harris 6 Buttigieg 5 Gabbard 3 (note: Gabbard doesn't finish in the top 6 in 2/3 of these polls, I just wanted to highlight the variance with her numbers) I mean, the smart thing to do obviously is look at the average and conclude that it's a three way scrum for 1st in the state right now. But, while some differences in poll numbers is to be expected, these kinds of swings (which seem really common this year) among reputable pollsters are kind of crazy. Biden varying by 5 points is understandable, and Harris' are consistent. But Warren being in a 10 point range seems extreme, and it's not the worst of it. Sanders being anywhere from running away with the state to being in danger of hitting single digits and falling to 4th is just insane. Gabbard is irrelevant in 2 polls, but in another is about to burst into an upper tier. I always tell people not to react too much to one poll, and this is a pretty good example of why. Hell, the above makes you wonder what we're looking at even thru the prism of multiple polls.
  12. Actually, I erred in the way I talked about this. In fact, it's not really spelled out in the CBA, it would be a matter of arbitration. The last player who did it was under a previous CBA and was, as you indicate, ruled to have needed to play out the number of years under contract. It hasn't been tested in a long time, but probably you're right, his contract would likely toll that way. I was more thinking about how the general definition of "accruing a season" isn't the proper definition of what he'd be doing, and that I don't think Williams really cares about it, and I posted about his FA status without thinking it completely thru. So I'll edit that. Trying to carry on too many convos at once, my brain can't handle it.

    Raiders suspending Antonio Brown

    People who aren't sexual assault victims need to stop saying crap like this. Seriously, it's ignorant.
  14. I don't think Trent really cares about accruing a season. His plans probably don't revolve around service time to get out after 2020, but I could be wrong. You'e right that him showing up late and collecting salary for a team that's probably no longer in contention is a bit of a worst case scenario. But, if he really wants out, I can't figure why he'd fake an injury and drastically reduce the odds he could be traded. And this gets to the 2 real symptoms of stupidity this brings up. 1. The "win now" mode. We have no business being in such a mode. We're probably not a top 10 team even int eh conference and we have young talent to build around. To be sacrificing anything of the future for wins now is so wrong headed I struggle to find words to describe it. And you're right, it seems understandable why Brice would be in such "win now" mode, if he believes its what would save his job. And therein lies the ridiculous incompetence of Daniel Snyder. Giving a coach one more season to prove themselves has an inherent logic to it. Having a GM in such position creates so many incentive to not do what is right for your team that only a dunderheaded owner would think that is a smart way to conduct his franchise. 2. Even under the win now auspice, this is potentially a case of Bruce shooting himself in the foot. If Trent holds out all year, or comes back late in the year, maybe after the team is out of the running, is out of shape and ends up taking way more money than he's worth, does that really add up to "winning now"? Of course not. Meanwhile, if he's trying to sell Dan on his job performance, wouldn't an extra 1st and a bunch of extra cap space, added to the 1st round QB and other young talent, be the way to do it? What the hell would he be able to sell from this situation? "Yeah, we had a bad year, and I didn't get anything for Trent and he's year older and definitely leaving next season for nothing, but I really proved a point by not giving in to him, so you should give me an extension"?
